Thankful Thursday

I am grateful that I have started seeing a counselor. Today will be my third session. I feel like I am being proactive in how I handle the crud in my life. He inadvertently showed me something about Mark that will help me to better deal with some of the things he says to me that have thus far been very difficult for me to listen to.

I am very thankful that Mark had a great birthday, complete with cards and gifts and a lobster dinner from my dad! And SUN. It was raining when he came home from dialysis. He proceeded to expound on how it has rained every year of his life on his birthday....blah blah. I think God decided to get him and made the sun come out!

That sun let me have a fantastic walk. And yesterday after I showered and got dressed, I looked in the mirror and for the first time, thought maybe I look a little smaller than I used to. That feels pretty good.

And I am grateful the election is over and behind us. I am still more grateful that it was decisive, with Obama/Biden winning both the electoral and popular votes. I expected him to carry Ohio, but I am so pleased that he also won Florida. Also proud of the state of Washington for passing the legalization and taxation of marijuana, and for backing the state legislator in granting marriage equality. The times, they are a-changin'!

Won't you join me in expressing a little gratitude?
